Who needs Rock Candy Crackle Paint....

...when Mother Nature does it so much beter herself?  I took these today on the wall outside my back door.

On Wednesday night the snow came off my roof again.  The gutter remained in place, if a little bent but my poor Sky dish got mangled.  As you can see I have no satelite signal being received, which is something both of my TV's are taking great pleasure in reminding me each time I switch them on!!!  Sky are apparently coming out on Tuesday to fix it.  Watch this space...

I also had a 'small' mound of snow outside my front door.  Yes, that is my car hiding in the pile of snow!  Theres no chance of me getting into my car at this point.  The only thing that'll help is if the temperature rises to around 30 degrees which is impossible given that its winter in Britain.

My Mam very kindly dug a little path into the snow so I had an escape route if I needed it.  At least thats what she wanted.  She'd been worried about me not being able to clamber over the snow.  I was more concerned about post not getting to me LOL!!!

I need to give a big THANK YOU to Lionel the carpet fitter who came through the snow on Thursday in a 4x4 to fit my new craft room carpet.  He even dug a path out for me in my back garden.  Now that what I call customer service!!!

Hope you're all keeping warm and safe.  Looks like its set to continue a while yet so no doubt there'll be some more photo opportunities!

Oh, wow, those pictures of your back wall are amazing. You could print them out and use them as papers. Mother Nature certainly does things best.

We finally got our car dug out today, but it wasn't as stuck in as yours - good grief! I've asked my Grandad to send some of their Aussie sun over here - apparently it's 36C over there! That's definitely what it would take to shift that lot!

Keep warm Jill, we have no snow at all here, sorry! I am meant to be coming up North on Wednesday for the workshops, but it's not looking positive. I hope you all get thawed out soon, take care, Judith xx
